I've collected a bag of things I've wanted to tie dye for a year. It's been in the garage and then moved to the laundry room and finally to the kitchen in an attempt to jump start this project already! This whole tie dying thing is messy. I let my kitchen table be the tie station for about a week before I got up the nerve to start mixing the dyes.
My hands are still blue and pink and my fingernails remind me of those plague disclosing tablets you get from the dentist. You can see the outline of my fingernails in deep red which shows all my hangnails and cuticles that need attending. I think the next thing on my to-do list is a manicure!
But, the end result is pretty beautiful and colorful which is the whole point. My kids have hidden under their stained and worn play clothes a rainbow of colors that make me happy. I definitely think they're better than plain tighty whities.
I found these linen napkins on sale and decided that I needed some color in my kitchen too.
Now, even the most simplest of meals will be special.
